The North West Blackburn team also held an outside winter drop-in session at Blackburn Golf Club on Beardwood Brow this week.

Officers were offering winter crime prevention advice and to discuss any issues people have in the area.

The team also held a "meet your officer" event at Tesco Express Livesey Branch Road.
